Abby's sick again...

Abby developed a runny nose last Thursday night. By Friday, she was congested and had a fever. She seemed a little better on Saturday and Sunday, although her nose still dripped like a leaky faucet. We went ahead and took her to the sitter's on Monday, but by Tuesday night, the runny nose hadn't gone away, and she started projectile vomiting. Mike and I started giving her Pedialyte in small increments, and the vomiting subsided. Now, for the last two days, she's had diarrhea. My poor baby has been sick for a solid week. She's handled it pretty well, though - sometimes still playing with her toys and talking and smiling to us. She's been clingy all week, and there have been many times that we've slept on the couch with her because setting her down ruined her world.

It's been over 12 hours since she had diarrhea, and I have started giving her a little bit of formula. I am crossing my fingers that she feels better. She STILL has the runny nose, but I am hoping that the runny nose could have more to do with teething than the vomiting/diarrhea illness.
